Boothbay Harbor Yacht Club is seeking a new club manager. The club has been the sailing hub of coastal Maine for over 100 years, welcoming boaters who want to experience the legendary Down East cruising grounds and picturesque Boothbay Harbor.
Our location in West Boothbay Harbor offers panoramic views of the harbor and the boats that fill it. We have an 85:vessel mooring field with available rental moorings for members and visiting yachtsmen and full:time launch service through the summer and early fall. We are the only yacht club in Maine to have a full:service waterfront dining room and bar with professional chef and staff. Our facility is open for a 20:week season, serving lunch and dinner as well as catering private events.
The club offers many activities : both on the water and off : for its 300:plus members. There are sailing and tennis lessons for adults and a large junior program offering sailing, tennis and golf. Our members enjoy a summer cruise schedule to explore the Maine coast as well as annual regattas and a weekly racing series. Among other popular activities are a lecture series, special dining events, bridge, kayaking and special interest groups. In the spring and fall shoulder seasons, the club sponsors a competitive high school sailing team.
The club is overseen by an 18:member board of directors, including six elected officers, and it has an annual budget of 800,000. Its 3:acre waterfront campus includes extensive docks, tennis courts, five buildings and 50 boats.
Although our club is open May through September, this is a year:round position with commensurate salary and benefits. We are searching for an energetic, outgoing manager who will be the face of the Boothbay Harbor Yacht Club, someone with high visibility within the club as well as throughout the community. We envision a leader with recreational sailing and boating experience who will understand the needs of boaters while managing a very busy waterfront enterprise with many competing demands on time and duties. The position reports to the Commodore. Because the club is managed functionally around its programs, each headed by a volunteer committee chair and an assigned officer, we are searching for a club manager who is used to achieving results through the joint efforts of volunteers and staff. In the off:season, while the club is closed, the club manager will be planning and preparing for the next season.
Key duties include:
:Taking responsibility for the daily administrative, financial and program operations of the club.
:Recruiting, hiring and managing a summer employee roster of 35; conducting staff training and establishing performance standards with a goal of consistently exceeding member expectations. Direct reports include program directors for sailing, tennis, waterfront; food and beverage; executive chef, and others.
:Contracting with and managing relationships with all key vendors, establishing and monitoring purchasing procedures and compliance.
:Overseeing all BHYC facilities, property and equipment, both in the summer and the off:season; coordinating contracted work, repairs and maintenance.
:Managing the food and beverage program. Among the goals are increasing member use with a mix of casual and more formal fare and adding appeal to younger families by offering good value and a contemporary vibe that competes with in:town family restaurants. Also making sure controls are in place to assure consistent food quality within budget, managing our Aloha POS (or other club management system) and restaurant safety and hygiene.
:Improving communications with members through newsletters, calendars, email; continuously updating the club website; regularly using Facebook and other social media to demonstrate our commitment to getting people on the water so we will attract more boaters to the club.
